As “time and tide waits for no man”, take control of your own health now through healthy eating and an active lifestyle.
Physical activity or the lack thereof can determine whether the ageing process will be beset with health problems or not. So make the best of your senior years and achieve physical wellness by making minor adjustments in your daily routine. Simply observe these 3 key strategies:
For seniors to age well and be in good health, eat foods that are high in nutrients such as whole grains, fruits and leafy-green vegetables, which provide the body with the required minerals and vitamins. Seniors should also cut back on sugar, fat and salt, and increase calcium intake for stronger bones. Remember the saying, “You are what you eat”.
One is never too old to start a healthy lifestyle. Try brisk walking, leisure cycling or stretching exercises. Start slow and then gradually increase the distance, duration and frequency of your activity. Enjoy as you progress and you will have many more good years ahead.
